Use this basic chai recipe as a starting point, then alter it to suit your preferences. You might add black peppercorns, vanilla bean seeds, star anise, bay leaves, or allspice, for instance.

How to Make It

Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Add milk and tea; simmer for 4 minutes (do not boil). Strain through a fine sieve into a small bowl; discard solids. Add honey to tea mixture, stirring until well blended.

Easy, authentic chai taste. I used 1% milk and added honey to taste which was only a fraction of the amount shown in the recipe. This significantly decreases the calories, and I prefer the taste less sweet. Good recipe though and easy too.
